Valuing Cantel Medical stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Cantel Medical's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Cantel Medical's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 105x. In other words, Cantel Medical shares trade at around 105x recent earnings.
That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.
Cantel Medical's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.7358. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Cantel Medical's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Cantel Medical's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is USD$188.9 million.

TTM: trailing 12 months
There are currently 2.6 million Cantel Medical shares held short by investors – that's known as Cantel Medical's "short interest". This figure is 10.5% down from 2.9 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Cantel Medical shares can be evaluated.
Cantel Medical's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Cantel Medical shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Cantel Medical shares traded daily (recently around 369488.10888252). Cantel Medical's SIR currently stands at 6.98. In other words for every 100,000 Cantel Medical shares traded daily on the market, roughly 6980 shares are currently held short.
However Cantel Medical's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Cantel Medical shares, or, against the total number of tradable Cantel Medical shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Cantel Medical's short interest could be expressed as 0.06% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Cantel Medical shares in existence, roughly 60 shares are currently held short) or 0.0779% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Cantel Medical shares, roughly 78 shares are currently held short).
A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Cantel Medical.

Dividend payout ratio: 5.5% of net profits
Recently Cantel Medical has paid out, on average, around 5.5% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.66% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cantel Medical shareholders could enjoy a 0.66% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cantel Medical's case, that would currently equate to about $0.21 per share.
While Cantel Medical's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Cantel Medical is investing more in its future growth.
Cantel Medical's most recent dividend payout was on 31 January 2020. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 January 2020 (the "ex-dividend date").
Cantel Medical's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 15 July 2013. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Cantel Medical shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Cantel Medical shares which in turn could have impacted Cantel Medical's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Cantel Medical's shares have ranged in value from as little as $20.81 up to $80.91. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Cantel Medical's is 1.4693. This would suggest that Cantel Medical's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
